Absolutely! We made a promise that we would do this without a mortgage, line of credit, credit cards or any debt. Everything is done out of pocket. That means no interest charges either. As a result, 100% of our labour goes to us and the family. None of it is being stolen by the banks or others, with the exception of inflation. We tackle that problem by purchasing things right away with the cash we do make. That way we mitigate inflation issues of holding onto money and it deteriorate in purchasing power while we hold on to it. There are times were we have zero cash, but we are still very secure knowing that all our needs are being met. Thanks for sharing. I appreciate that very much.
